From all the major attractions in Corpus Christi, touring the USS Lexington was the best by all means. The huge vessel which served in the second World War is now converted into a museum and open for public tours every day. It is such and incredible experience to get on board of such a ship, see its various corners, the flight deck, the aircrafts. The best part was the flight simulator, however. You definitely have to try that!

You just have to see everything there is on the ship, you will be amazed. It is a highly recommended sight! Don't miss it!
